What is LimeLight?

The LimeLight Facial is a new, non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with ageing and photo damage. The LimeLight treatment delivers a non-invasive light treatment that can be customised for different skin tones and ageing skin conditions. The result is an exceptionally effective skin rejuvenation treatment with minimal discomfort.

What does it treat ?

The LimeLight Facial is ideal for any part of your face, neck and de'collete; with;

  • Skin redness
  • Telangiectasia (tiny veins)
  • Brown spots
  • Light (low contrast) brown spots, which were previously difficult to resolve, respond very well to treatment.

How does it work ?

By selecting Program A, B or C, your practitioner can customise your LimeLight Facial to your skin type and selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. It's the heating of the pigmented brown or red cells that causes the therapeutic effect.

The procedure

The procedure is preformed by one of our highly trained Doctors or Nurses. Treatment time depends on the area of the body being treated. However, most treatments should take less than one hour.

When the pulse of light is delivered, patients will experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. Gel is recommended to cool the skin before vascular treatments. Anaesthesia or pain medicine is typically not required.

One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sun- damaged skin.

Immediately following treatment, brown spots will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may be mildly swollen. This typically lasts a few hours and possibly a day or longer. Make-up can be applied to cover the redness.

When will I see results ?

Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Diffuse redness or telangiectasia will decrease and your mottled complexion will improve.
